Ellinor Ljungkvist's choreographic work is known for its combination of contemporary dance and conceptual performance art. “There is a hole in my history” is part of a larger research project focused on personal stories told by women of different backgrounds. The stories are reality based and may touch upon universal and existentialistic topics. Each story is unrelated from one another. The choreographic approach of Ellinor Ljungkvist for each solo is different and related to its content.
